I’ve drawn many plans… to many projects… These projects have included everything from programming micro controllers, engineering helpful technology for around the house and designing furniture for kids. The problem is… When it comes to woodworking I was always so nervous about it not being perfect that I never made the first cut.
My wife gave me a budget of $500 to get some tools and materials to get started!
I have a basic Ryobi kit with an impact drill, drill, circular saw, brad nailer, sawzall, coping saw and a back saw. Don’t forget the wood glue and two clamps! I bought a set of chisels from Harbor Freight. Truth is I have several automotive tools but not a whole lot for woodworking.
So what will I spend this $500 on? I have wish list.
Hand planes – no idea what kinds for a beginner!
Or maybe even…
A good table saw. Looking at this nice Ridgid one I’ve been researching.
I have no idea what I’m going to do but I’m hoping that IF I can get a table saw… I can talk her into giving up a couple extra hundred for a couple basic tools! Ha!
Anyway, if anyone ever reads this… Feel free to make suggestions. I have no idea what I’m doing… I have tons of ideas and can’t wait to dig into some wood… But have no idea what I’m doing!
